“They’re around here somewhere,” she murmured three times. They’re really tight, though, because your feet grow after you don’t wear them for a long time.” Her medals — from the World Figure Skating Championships, from the Olympics — were equally elusive: “They’re in some bag somewhere.” Uncertainty is not a feeling Debi Thomas has often experienced in her 48 years. Thomas, a former orthopedic surgeon who doesn’t have health insurance, declared bankruptcy in 2014 and hasn’t brought in a steady paycheck in years. I look at her, wondering, ‘Why are you not working somewhere else? The per capita income is less than ,000, and the few industries left booming in the wake of mining layoffs include cash-express shops and pain-management clinics. One is inscribed with “Believe.” The other, “Reimagine.” It quickly becomes apparent that Thomas, for all of her talents, is not a good storyteller. “I’m very misunderstood because I look at the world differently,” she continues.
“I know I have a pair,” she continued, before trailing off. She was once so confident in her abilities that she simultaneously studied at Stanford University and trained for the Olympics, against the advice of her coach. After Stanford came medical school at Northwestern University, then marriage to a handsome lawyer who gave her a son — who in turn became one of the country’s best high school football players. She’s twice divorced, and her medical license, which she was in danger of losing anyhow, expired around the time she went broke. She instead inveighs against shadowy authorities in the nomenclature of conspiracy theorists — “the powers that be”; “corporate media”; “brainwashing” — and composes opinion pieces for the local newspaper that carry headlines such as “Pain, No Gain” and “Driven to Insanity.” She thinks that hoarding gold will insulate us from a looming financial meltdown, and recruits people to sell bits of gold bullion called “Karatbars.” There’s a conventional narrative of how Thomas went from where she was to where she is — that of a talented figure undone by internal struggles and left penniless. She was a black athlete who entered a sport that had exceedingly few. Thomas, riding shotgun as Looney steers a silver SUV on a recent afternoon, passes several such establishments before arriving at a country market. [The homeless man who went to Harvard Law with John Roberts] When explaining what brought her to Richlands, she communicates in a rush of thoughts, linked neither by chronology nor association, and exudes frustration when listeners can’t keep up. “You can call it the Olympian mentality.” * * * Excelling has always been very important in Thomas’s family.
She won her first US championship as a pairs skater with Rudy Galindo in 1986." She was imitating a scene in “The Shawshank Redemption” in which a prisoner escapes and stretches his arms outward in the rain. The mobile home where she lives with her fiance and his two young boys was cluttered with dishes, stacks of documents, a Christmas tree still standing weeks past the holiday. “And I’m like, ‘You people are fools.’ I’m trying to change the world.” * * * Richlands, populated by coal miners with few mines to plunder, would seem to be an odd place to launch such an effort.
